Comment on Whittling away at sacred sites protection by Penangke.

Mr Scambury understands that the proposed removal of this tree is acceptable to custodians but Mr Scambury and AAPA are not consulting with senior custodians.
And what is the Arrernte council thinking.
They were fined for damaging this site now it seems its open slather.

Whittling away at sacred sites protection
Aboriginal Areas Protection Authority prosecuted an organisation 10 years ago for damage to this site while trying to put in a bike path.
Now it seems AAPA think its OK to do further damage to this site against custodians’ wishes.
AAPA called Doris Stuart as one of their main witnesses in that court case, now they avoid talking to her. AAPA seem to have no ethics and are clearly not about protecting Aboriginal areas but rather about trying to find ways around custodians to allow damage to their sites.
Development at any cost.
And while we are on the subject of cost $800,000+ seems a ridiculous amount of taxpayers money to pay for a couple of hundred yards of bike path, when there is a perfectly good bike path running parrallel a hundred yards away. How much of that cash will get into the hands of the gammon custodians?

Gallery should be all set to go
“If developed properly.” Jeff, that’s the thing this has not been developed properly.
There has been no respect for locals. The government chose the site before any of us knew about the plans and has been trying to bully us ever since.
People travelling from OS or interstate are not going to travel all that way and only go to the gallery.
They will visit other attractions and the town centre wherever the gallery is.
Custodians have been developed, ignored, avoided or hand selected.
Two surveys including the governments own have shown a majority for the gallery but against the Anzac site.
There has been no rational reasoning put forward as to why Anzac is the only possible place.
They have no business case, they have no money no idea and not a lot of support.


Voter banned from Parliamentarian’s office
What’s the point of voting for a Labor Party member if they don’t get to represent my interests on an important issue? Who were the eight or so who voted for fracking? How come they get to decide? Why didn’t my member get to represent me, and which way would you have voted, Chansey?

Yep.


Anonymous donation doesn’t fix conflict of interest for council
Culturally Jacinta has no authority to do a welcome to Mparntwe. It needs to be an Mparntwe person. It is a tokenistic gesture. How many would leave if told they weren’t welcome?
